Thanks for the tip.
EDIT: dang it I just ran S&M on my 3700@ 2.75 GHz and failed. I'm not sure why, I know it's not from getting too hot(44c)....I ran prime for 5 hours the other night @ 2.86 GHz with no errors. It runs flawlessly at 2.75 GHz..... hmmmmmm??
Which test did it fail? Usually if it fails the L1 cache test, you need more voltage. If it fails L2 cache or FPU, it's usually because of temps. BTW, the FPU test WILL get it the hottest, be sure to keep aclose eye on temps.
A little 939 update of my own. So I finally gotaround to testing my opty after the power failure. The board that it was on , at stock speeds, it would fail prime after 51 mins. Come ot find out that, that damn Hyper X RAM is causing instability. Because the reference clock doesn't stay constant, it usually fluctuates upwards ~1 MHz, causes the RAM to destabilize. :swearing: That damn RAM.
At any rate, I swapped the board and RAM out for the other Ultra-D. Passed 3 hours of Prime @ stock, now I'm testing it @ 2640 @ 1.344v. So far it's 1/2 an hour stable at this speed/voltage. I think I might see how high she'll really go, stabily.
I'll also post up a mini CPU cooler comparison when I get back from the store.
